Foods That Should Be Avoided And Foods That Are Safer For Regular Diet

We all love our furry friends and want to keep our dogs as safe and healthy as we can. If you’ve recently become a dog owner, you may be asking yourself what foods you should avoid giving your dog, and what foods are safe for your dog to regularly eat. This guide should help you get started.

Signs Your Dog Has Eaten Something They Shouldn’t

Dogs often develop symptoms a few days after eating something they shouldn’t (On average, it takes three to four days). If you notice any of these symptoms in your dog, try to think back to anything they could have stolen from the kitchen or other places around your house in the past few days.

  • Loss of appetite
  • Lethargy
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Seizures

If you notice your dog experiencing any of these symptoms, take them to the vet as soon as possible. The sooner you can get them to the vet, the safer they will be.

Common Foods You Shouldn’t Give Your Dog

There are many foods your dog shouldn’t be eating. Dogs cannot tolerate human foods as well as we can, and consuming these foods can cause them to be in pain for days, not to mention that any diarrhea or vomiting can be a pain for you to clean up. Here are a few common foods that can be very harmful for your pet.

  • Chocolate
  • Cinnamon
  • Grapes
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Nuts
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Dairy Products
  • Salty Snacks
  • Yeast Dough
  • Cooked Bones

It’s common for a dog to try eating cooked bones, especially if you regularly cook meat, have a trash can that is accessible to your dog, or live with small children who may be tempted to offer bones to a dog under the belief that dogs love all bones. Cooked bones are very brittle, and they can easily become wedged in your dog’s teeth or throat. If you are looking for raw bones and related tasty treats that your dog can safely enjoy, consider raw shanks or a chicken carcass instead.

Buy frozen raw dog food for long-time storage. Never keep raw, unfrozen meat left out in your home. Buying from Albion Meat Products? Read more about preparing our meals.
